Salivary flow in borderline hypertension.

PMID:  3999634     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Salivary flow was studied in normotensives and in subjects with hypertension. Salivary flow rate was lower in borderline hypertensives than in normotensives. Propranolol, phentolamine and noradrenaline had no influence on salivary flow. Atropine decreased this parameter. The stimulating effect of neostigmine on saliva production was more pronounced in normotensives than in borderline hypertensives. The data support the assumption that in subjects with borderline hypertension the parasympathetic influence on the salivary glands is reduced.
